Hardanger Embroidery, Pulled Thread Work and Drawn Thread Work

Lacy embroideries worked on woven fabric.

 Hardanger embroidery is a form of cutwork and drawn thread work.  It was originally the Norwegian version of cutwork but has become very popular among embroiderers around the world.  Designs are based on empty squares and rectangles with blocks of satin stitches, called kloster blocks, to bind and secure the cut edges.

Pulled thread work collects the fabric threads into clumps by stitching with strong tension, leaving a pattern of holes.  No fabric threads are removed.

Drawn thread work removes some fabric threads and embellishes the thinned out areas.

Oh, Lorelei! I see!: This section is for Hardanger, Pulled Thread and Drawn Thread, jajajaja, that's why you insert that link. I understand. A beautiful Drawn Thread work. A lot of stitches!

Hi, Lorelei, it seems to me that those works are drawn thread more than Hardanger. Sorry if I can't write well in English. I'm very happy to say Hello again.
